Your Brain: Is It Your Biggest Ally or Your Worst Enemy?

Day 16: Evidence

If you’ve been waiting for a sign that you’re on the right path, or in the right place, rest assured this is it.

But no really.

How many of you have an idea of the direction you want to head?

How many of you then set out in that direction, and then along the way look for evidence that you’ve made the right decision/choice?

We’ve all done it. It feels good to have some reassurance when you’re venturing off into new territory.

Here’s the thing that I want to share with you though, you are completely in control of that. All of the time.

When you look for evidence that you’re doing the right thing, your brain will scan for evidence that you’re doing the right thing. And get this. IT WILL FIND IT!

That’s what our brains do.

On the other hand, if you set off in a direction that you don’t really want to head, and you look for evidence that you’ve made a bad choice…YOUR BRAIN WILL FIND THAT TOO!

Whatever it is that you task your brain with looking for, it will be really good at finding. Our brains always want to be right. Crazy hunh?!

Here’s what I suggest to get around this little snafu. Decide what it is that you want. I mean really, really want. (cue Spice Girls)

From a place of conciously thinking about it. Decide to move towards it. Then ask your brain to show you all of the ways that it is the perfect decsion for you.

Once your brain shows you all of the ways, believe it. With all of your heart. And keep taking action from that belief.

It will get you exactly where you need to go.
